Ways to save money on an engagement ring
Everyone knows a diamond ring can be quite pricey. Unfortunately, a marriage proposal without a ring is not an option. Every woman deserves to have a beautiful engagement ring on her ring finger. Many guys panic at the mere thought of purchasing one, but there is absolutely no need for that. There are more than enough ways to save money on an engagement ring, without having to give in on quality.
Buying an engagement ring online might not be a very romantic thought, but it can save you a lot of money. Where a lot of men used to be very skeptical towards online shopping, they are now much more willing to buy a diamond engagement ring online. And we do not disagree with them. At BAUNAT you will find the best quality at the best possible price.
Clarity and colour
You can also save money by choosing a diamond with a lower clarity and colour grade. This does not necessarily mean you are giving in on quality. Furthermore very few notice the difference with the naked eye. Do make sure the diamond is still nice and colourless. Another tip: choose white gold or platinum, these precious metals make the diamond shine even better.
Even though 1 carat is the standard when buying a diamond engagement ring, still this is not a necessity. Go for an 0.90 carat and save almost 30 percent. No one will see the difference in size, but you will notice it in your wallet.
Traditionally men most often choose a solitaire engagement ring to propose to their sweetheart. One large diamond will cost a lot more than a ring set with a number of diamonds of the same carat weight. Therefore go for a halo setting where the slightly smaller center stone is completely surrounded by smaller diamonds. This diamond engagement ring will appear optically bigger.
